Just saw the announcement on Shya Scanlon’s site. His novel Forecast, which has been getting serialized across 42 sites, including this one, has been picked up by Flatmancrooked for publication in 2010. This is fantastic news. It means the Forecast 42 project, though only half finished, has been a resounding success. It’s very difficult to get a book published, and the project created a groundswell of support and exposure for this one in a way I don’t think has been done before. It also means the world gets its first taste of a smart new voice in what I’m guessing will be just the first of many great novels. Congratulations, Shya!
